Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 24 March 2021

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is combining with the Queensland Police Service (QPS) and RACQ to raise road safety awareness and remind community that road safety is everyone’s responsibility.  In recognition of this, a road safety event has been organized for Thursday 1st April 2021 from 10:00am to 2:00pm and which will be held in Pipeliner Park, Esk.  QPS will also have a number of motorcycle police in attendance that will engage with motorcyclists, who are over-represented in the state road toll.  Sadly, the past weekend saw nine people killed in seven separate crashes on Queensland roads.  As of Monday 22nd March, the horrible occurrence brings the state’s road toll for the year to 63, 23 more than the same time last year.  Dozens of people have also been left injured in the pate of crashes.

Congratulations to West Moreton Landcare Group and Fernvale Art Society and the wonderful completed project of the C17 train mural which stands out on the container that is located along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail at Lowood.  It is absolutely wonderful to see the result of two active groups in our region.

Congratulations to Esk Country Golf Club Inc (Purchase & Install Shed on Concrete Slab $21,750), Kilcoy District Tennis Assn Inc (Resurface Tennis Courts $35,000) & Kilcoy Golf Club Inc (Purchase Mower $35,000) – Gambling Community Benefit Funds.

I was offered very sincere praise of Somerset Regional Council staff, Councillors, our local High Schools and Teachers by Noosa Film Academy.  Andrea and Greg Huglin have enjoyed their involvement with our region, and are looking forward to completing the project and holding the final film presentation to which I once again encourage all to attend.  The Red Carpet Toogoolawah Cinema Community Screening of “Kindness Umbrella” commences at 6:00pm on Thursday 1st April.
